Morning Roundup: Ariel Wants To Be Part of the Doctor’s World

Look at this stuff! Isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my AWESOME TIME MACHINE is complete? Is Ariel the girl who waited? How will the Doctor keep Ariel alive? Some awesome forcefield? A ganger-version of Ariel?

This wonderful art is only one in a series of Disney princesses being enticed by the Doctor and comes to us from Karen Hallion. Your offsite links are gonna live out of these waters. 

Highlights include:

  2. Average Shark has things to say on Twitter
  3. What Stephen King thinks about your ideas about a Shining prequel.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of and would totally have done a better job at explaining all those human objects to Ariel than that stupid seagull.

The homogenization of geeky blockbusters continues.

Star Trek Into Darkness AND Man of Steel both have shots of a character being escorted by military folk, and that shot is eerily reminiscent of the shot of Loki in The Avengers. And probably a whole bunch more. It really is starting to feel like the same movie.

@1 Really? So because they are properly guarding a prisoner during transportation they are copying off other movies?

Well I just watched Green Mile, and there is about 4 scenes just like that, so I guess this homogenized entertainment theory of yours goes back a little further.

Do they have to show the transport of a prisoner? No, mostly they don't. It's an overused gimmick, especially lately because it tends to mean the bad guy WANTS to be caught, so he can get under the skin of the good guys. It's tired.

Have you read the script? Seen a rough cut of the movie? You have no idea what the pretense of the scene is, you are making a snap judgment based on opinion.

Yes, Loki wanted to be captured. The scene in which this takes place is an allusion to the larger plan of Loki, without the little smile when he sees Banner, the scene with Widow play completely different.

Yes, Superman let him self be taken, most likely to demonstrate he is not "above" the law.

As to John Harrison, you have no idea when in the movie this takes place, where it takes place or why it is taking place.

Let the movie come out, watch it then complain how weak the scene was, or how useless it was.
